Coz

delay_ms((TICK_COUNT)5000000);

equals 5000 seconds!!

So either use
delay_ms(5000);   // 5000ms = 5 sec
or
delay_us(5000000);   // 5000000us = 5 sec

Ok so heres your next problem.
Think of 'appControl' being wrapped in a while(1){} loop
So your code is like this:

while(1){  // ie loop FOREVER
  set motors to go forward
  wait 5 seconds
  set motors to stop
}

So your motors stop, but then the loop starts again and makes them go forwards. So they stop for a minute fraction of a second.

Try adding another delay after your 'stop' command.

hey that worked man. we got it driving forward for 5 seconds then stopping for 5 seconds. I can work with that. So I just need to keep including these delays after the stop intervals and everything should be good. Thanks man
